R- Happy times do we spend
With Our Savior during Lent,
Weeks go by as we fast and try
Living every word He said.
1- First thing we learn to keep
Spiritual works secret and deep,
We fast and offer alms and say,
To you only Lord I pray.
No one sees me except My Lord
Who grants the heavenly reward.
2- First week we learn to seek
Kingdom of God and to keep
Our eyes on Him who can
Clothe the grass of the field,
Following the birds of the air
Who can neither sow nor reap.
3- Second week is our Lord's temptation
By the devil on the mount.
Third week is the Prodigal son,
Can you tell me how he won?
And who is the real Father
There awaiting you to come?
4- Fourth week is the Samaritan Woman
On her sins did she dwell,
Six hours Jesus walked
Just to meet her at the well!!
She knew He's the living water
Everyone she ran to tell!!
5- Fifth week we learn at the people
How you made the cripple whole,
Thirty eight years he had to tarry
Before You said his bed to carry.
Sixth week is the blind born
Whose faith in You won't be torn.
6- Seventh week is Palm Sunday
When we receive You in our hearts,
Clothes and garments we're spreading
And the colt treads on to pass!!
Son of David: Save us all,
Hosanna we won't cease to call.
